Our Packet is due here later today. I did get a tracking number but not from RAGBRAI. We subscribe to the Post Office’s free “Informed Delivery” service. Tracking # showed up there on Monday when it was mailed.
If it helps – The EXPO (with all sorts of bike related merchandise and info) runs from 12 to 9pm – of course the music will last longer. Sunset in Le Mars is 8:53 and twilight extends for another 1/2 hour. A lot of people do try to get to bed once the daylight recedes. Hnschipper was right on – in the interest of domestic tranquility plan to…[Read more]
Has anyone got a handle on the themes for each of the overnight towns? It might be just my not getting used to the new format but I can’t find a lot from the towns regarding this. Waterloo has posted and Anamosa has some reference to its 2012 theme (Ride it like you stole it) but there seems little else.
Seems to me that somewhere I ran across info that Waterloo was planning for a Prince cover band. I may be totally wrong and it may just be a figment of my imagination but at my age that’s all I have anyway!
I too had been concerned about the effects of wearing masks for an extended time especially in regard to “recycling” my expelled breath. On the surface it seemed likely that it might raise my CO2 levels. However what little research I have done indicates that there is little or no rise in CO2 nor lowering of blood oxygen levels from mask…[Read more]
Yes I was comparing to the original route but it looks like I was not the only one. Quoting from the announcement that 2021 is a “GO”,
“The 2021 route starts in Le Mars with overnight stops in Sac City, Fort Dodge, Iowa Falls, Waterloo, Anamosa, DeWitt before ending in Clinton. Sac City and DeWitt will host riders overnight for the first time in…[Read more]
I use “Chrome” as my browser. Like others I have been having access issues on my laptop for days. At first the entire site was unavailable but then little by little pieces of it started showing up but even then only partially. For instance this morning the Forum topic menu finally showed up but when I went to click on a topic the dreaded “down…[Read more]
MORE MILES FOR SURE – We won’t know exactly how much until it gets posted but my best guess (based upon the north/south deviation from the measured route) is that the first leg will add 4 to 6 miles and the second leg will add another 14 to 16 miles. That could easily make it a 70 to 80 mile day for the truly adventurous.
Just read a story from KIWA (a radio station in Spencer) that suggests that Le Mars may be having second thoughts. Quoting from the article, “City officials in Le Mars, which had been tapped as the ride’s starting point, are talking about whether they think hosting this year’s opening night is a good idea, considering the amount of preperation…[Read more]
Glad to hear of others having issues with the new system. Looks like everything transferred to the new system BUT one member of our team wanted to change from a non rider to a weeklong rider and another person wanted to join our team – so far no luck on either account. I too have sent a request for help to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thus far no answer at all.
